The Hollywood Reporter are convinced that the role he is up for is that of Sam Wilson, A.K.A ‘The Falcon’. You’ll hear a lot about the character being able to talk to birds, but I highly doubt that will come into play at all. The MCU films have all be an amalgamation of the ‘Classic Marvel comics (or 616) and the Ultimate Marvel Comics. That’s why Nick Fury is a black guy who looks just like Samuel L Jackson (Ultimate Marvel) and not a white ‘Napoleon Solo’ type (616). Captain America’s costume from WWII is mostly Ultimate Marvel, as are Hawkeye & Widow coming from S.H.I.E.L.D, Hawkeye’s costume, the Chitauri and numerous other elements. So rather than a street tough made good, I expect to see the scientist turned field agent who joins Widow & Hawkeye as extra special agent, thanks to his techno-wings.
